Political asylum to the U.S.= As his brother-in-law, a communist member, was arrested, Ramadan`s wife and two children were also arrested by intelligence agents. Ramadan asked Hussein for their lives, but Hussein`s first son Wudai executed them. He was unable to do anything but just keep quiet.

In 1990, Ramadan was severely injured by a bomb terror on the way to Kuwait. He was going there to raise military morale right after Iraq`s invasion of Kuwait.

At that time, his current wife Sofia took care of him as a nurse. He was persuaded by Sofia who grew up in the U.S. and an American intelligence agency to seek for a political refuge in the United States. Finally in 1999, he decided to take the action. He is now living a secret life with a different name under the protection of the intelligence agency.
